Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Whenever there is some sort of school party, potluck, holiday gathering, etc…I love to make these Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars.  I was first introduced to this classic recipe when I lived in Connecticut, by a mom who had been making these since her children were just toddlers.  After trying the cookie bars, I begged her for the recipe.  She laughed and said that people ask her all the time for it, and it’s right in front of your eyes!  Literally right in front of my eyes, on the Tollhouse chocolate chip bag.  I looked at the packaging, but I only saw a recipe for cookies.  Alas, under the cookie recipe there is a cookie bar recipe.  It uses the same recipe as making cookies, but you spread them in a baking dish or jelly roll pan (depending on how thick you like your cookies-I like them more like brownies!), and cook for a bit longer.

Over the weekend one of my friends mentioned she was making these delicious bars, and I was shocked to hear how many people had never heard of them!  Right away I ran out to Kroger and picked up the only thing we didn’t have-chocolate chips.  You probably have most, if not all, of the ingredients in your pantry right now, so these are pretty easy to make.  I highly suggest you don’t make these, unless you are planning to bring them somewhere because you will eat the entire pan yourself.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you….

  6. These look so good. I just love chocolate chip cookies so you can’t go wrong with them in bar form too.

  7. I used to make these all the time for my children. They are yummy and easier than dropping the dough onto the cookie sheets, and you can eat bigger pieces. Thanks so much for joining us at Transformed Tuesday.
